Free Pop Music Mix


Published September 15, 2016


A corpus of free pop music recordings, mixed by a professional sound

engineer in several variants used to experiment with a listener’s

feelings of social cohesion.




This data base is a set of 10 different free mixed pop songs

extracted from the Cambridge University Mixing Corpus (http://www.cambridge-mt.com/MixingSecrets.htm) declined in 6 versions:


1. Single lead voice + orchestra – drums : SG-version

2. Single lead voice + vocal overdub (double-tracking) + orchestra - drums : DB-version

3. Single lead voice – overdub + orchestra + drums: DR-version

4. Single lead voice + randomly detuned PBO (playback orchestra) : P-version

5. Single lead voice + randomly desynchronized PBO: T-version

6. Single lead voice + PBO: N-version

Database organisation:


You’ll find in this database two different folders (long stimuli and
short stimuli)) divided in respectively three and six subfolders.


All files in « long stimuli » folder are about 30 sec long and those in « short stimuli » folder about 15 sec long,


Each of the subfolders corresponds to a mixed version (SG, DB, DR, N, P
or T) and for each one its files are tagged with the same code.


Each audio file is named in order to explicitly explain it’s characteristics in the database.


For each sound, the code name is the following:


First letter: singer’s genre (M/F)


Second letter: number of the speaker


Third letter (A or B): number of the extract within a song. The
letter A corresponds to extract 1 and the letter B to extract 2.


Fourth (and fifth) letter(s): The one or two last letters indicate(s) the type of modification of the files.

N = Normal (= single voice lead + vocal overdub (double tracking) + PBO + drums

P = PBO randomly pitched

T = PBO randomly time-stretched

SG = single voice + PBO

DB : single voice lead + vocal overdub (double-tracking) + PBO

DR: single voice lead + PBO + drums


For example, a file called “M2BP” is the second extract (B) of recording of “Male 2”, whose PBO was randomly pitched.

Sound specifications:


The sounds have been normalised in loudness using an algorithm from Emmanuel Ponsot


The recordings are in .wav.



Hope you enjoy it,
